I live in Santee and haven't been to that Panda Garden buffet place. How much is it? To lazy to check.


It's $9.99 for dinner and cheaper for lunch..probably a buck or two less. Generally, I'm not much of a buffet fan, but you should check it out.

Hmm, am I the only one who still doesn't own a next-gen system? I'm still just skeptical about all the systems right now, and there aren't really any games that seem to fit what I'm into. I just haven't seen any system selling games, though from what people say about halo 3, it could change. However, I only had fun playing Halo with friends and yelling at each other threatening to buck futt them after owning em at deathmatch. But as far as I can see, Halo 3 seems like a better looking version of Halo 2 with a few "gimmicks". The online scene wouldn't be for me either, that "I slept with your mom and your ancestors from 1000 years ago" talk just gives me headaches.

if the beta is as good an idication as i think it is, halo 3 is substantially better than 2. the " gimmicks" are improvments, and good ones.

Yeah, so far the beta has been pretty fun. The graphics are a nice upgrade and there are some cool, new features. I'm glad the assault rifle is back and the shotgun seems a little more powerful than usual. The new spike grenades are pretty cool...although I wish they had more throwing distance.

Anyone go to the Mudd Club arcade in north county near Nickel City? I'm reading about it right now. Looks pretty cool. I'm thinking about checking it out next weekend.

Since MarkMan mentioned evo being downtown, I decided to play some CvS2. Got my ass beat by someone at Nickel City on Friday, but I suck badly on arcade stick and only do 50%-75% of what I can do on a controller. I just don't have the quickness and familiarity on an arcade stick the way I do with a controller.

Edit: I read that it isn't popular because prices are too high. Oh well. But I'll be going to Nickel City at least once a month now when I have nothing to do on weekends.

Haven't been to an arcade in a while. Is Initial D still big? My friend was so addicted to that game, it just wasn't funny. Had a racing gang and everything...

i got together with some buddies for our 4-times-a-year (or so) Halo gathering. we played the Beta for about an hour, and then went back to Halo 2 for the next 6 hours.

it was fun, but didn't look very next-gen and the limited customization sent us back to the oldy. i'm sure we'll upgrade when the full version is available, but the Beta just didn't give me (or us) enough incentive to play it for very long.

it ran silky-smooth, though.

Silky smooth, just not so next-gen graphics wise, but it's still fun as shit

Hey guys, I need opinions. Is it a prime time to get a wii this memorial day weekend?

And is the $40 off $200 coupon still in effect? and does it still apply to the Wii?

As for my interest in the system. Right now I'm not interested in any of the current Wii games. The only two games I would most likely be interested in is Smash Bros. and maybe Pokemon Battle Revo.

Should I get the wii this weekend? or is there nothing to worry about?

EDIT: Bleh, nvm, the coupon does not apply to consoles.

Just got a letter in the mail today from GameCrazy.

Looks like the store on East H St. is closing in the near future. If you guys have any credit at that store make sure to do something with it since the credit doesn't carry over to other stores. Sad to see the store go, but as someone who used to work there, it was really only a matter of time before that store closed down.

I'll probably go down there today or tomorrow to see if there is anything worth picking up with my credit. I'll also update with an exact last day of business if possible, unless someone finds out before me.

Yeah, I've noticed quite a few GameCrazy closings recently. The one on Mira Mesa Blvd closed about a year ago. There's one by SDSU that just closed in the last couple of months. Apparently the one in Escondido is closing as well. There are still a bunch of them around (I have 3 of them here in El Cajon, all within 5 mins of my house), but it seems like they are slowly going the way of the dodo bird.

it would help if they were marginally organized. especially the one in national city, yard sales are organized better.
sucks , cause their pricing is better than eb/gs

Hey guys,

My little bro is going to SDSU and is moving out of the dorms for the next year. He needs to get a good mattress for cheap. Any suggestions? I figured I'd send him up to Miramar Road for a good deal. Anyone know of anywhere better than that or a specific store? He needs delivery to his Mission Valley apartment.

On a videogame note, Odin Sphere is fantastic. Anyone looking for a sweet side-scrolling action RPG should go for it....and it runs fine on the PS3!

Really? Wouldn't you be taking a pay cut if you quit SeaWorld? Besides, I hear terrible things about working at games stores.

Yeah but I won't mind because if you compare the things you do at Sea World to the things you do in retail the difference is so much. It's like getting paid $9.00 to do a lot or get paid $7.50 or however much to do a lot less (like standing around until someone shows up and such). I rather take the $7.50 and do less lol.

I know that it's been around since the beginning of March and what not, but I just went to Yogurt World in Kearny Mesa for the first time. I have to say that it was pretty awesome. I love the Asian Peach and Tart Mango. Here's a tip for everyone: Fill to the brim with frozen yogurt and then add the toppings. What was once $0.38/oz. seemed more like $3.00/oz.

Is that the one next to Tapioca Express? If so, I heard it was expensive. Just how expensive is it?

Yeah, that's where it is.

It's $0.38/oz. This includes all flavors and toppings. You just pickup a styrofoam cup and fill it up to your heart's content with any combination of flavors. They're all self-serve machines.

You can also ask for sample cups to try any of the flavors. The toppings are all by the registers. They have everything from candy and cereal to fresh fruit and jellies. The flavors change every so often, as do the toppings I think. Then it's all weighed when you pay.

How much is usually a whole cup?

Also, how long do places usually call you for an interview after you turn in an application? Is it good to do a follow up on an application? At SeaWorld they scheduled me for an interview right when I turned it in.

On average, about $5 on the smaller cup.

As for the application process, it could be a few days or even a couple of weeks. It just depends on how many people applied, how many they need, and how soon they need them.

I just called a place I applied at to do a follow up on my application and the person that answered the phone took note of my name, availability, and phone number. She said she was gonna let - I assume the manager - know that I called. Coolio :)

Sorry man, but all I hear about those stores is how much you have to worry about preorder quotas and memberships and all that just to keep your job. You don't have to sell crap people don't want to keep your job at SeaWorld.

Although to be fair, the GSs and GCs I shop at seem pretty chill about that, so I don't know.
